With today's high energy costs, it makes good sense to find ways to heat and cool your home more efficiently. Investing in the latest advancements in smart heating technology is an ideal way to streamline your energy consumption, lower your household operating costs, and enjoy a more consistently comfortable home.
What Smart Heating Systems Offer
Smart heating systems use a combination of intelligent controls and technologically-advanced HVAC equipment to create a responsive system that provides superior comfort, ultra-reliable performance, and optimized energy efficiency. The smart systems available today include components designed to give you greater control and insight, while making your home heating more intuitive, intelligent and convenient, such as:
- Smart thermostats
- Variable-speed air handlers
- Variable-output furnaces
- Intelligent zoning systems
Smart Heating System Abilities and Benefits
The central component of intelligent heating technology is a smart thermostat, such as the iComfort from Lennox. This kind of thermostat gives you the ability to program and adjust your heating remotely via a user-friendly app. A smart thermostat's capabilities go beyond remote access, though, because it can also:
- Make HVAC maintenance more convenient. The thermostat constantly monitors the system's operation and reminds you when filters need changing, and alerts you and your HVAC pro if an issue develops that needs attention.
- Provide greater comfort and energy savings. Your thermostat can communicate directly with advanced components like a variable-speed air handler and variable-capacity furnace to precisely control energy use and comfort throughout your home.
- Improve air quality. By monitoring the air quality based on your zip code, the thermostat will run your system's fan to filter the air if pollen counts rise during a mid-winter mild spell.
- Fine-tune heating in a large or multi-level home. When paired with an intelligent zoning system, your smart thermostat optimizes heating and energy consumption in specific areas, rooms and levels of your home.
- Make saving energy effortless, 24/7. Using GPS technology, your smart system detects when you leave and arrive home and adjusts your heating system's output automatically.
